Keep Mindy In Oregon!

As a friend, you know how difficult it is to ask anyone for help. And because of my stubbornness, I've lost contact with so many of you in the past couple of years, and I am TRULY sorry that I didn't lean on the strong shoulders of my amazing friends before life matters became so dire. I have been battling a central nervous disorder that has turned my world sideways. After my car accident (which most of y'all didn't know about) several years ago, I was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease - and though it explained my bouts of vertigo, my hearing loss didn't progress like the specialist prepared me for. After experiencing migraines and losing my vision, I sought a third opinion. This time from an Otolaryngologist who was able to deduce that I didn't have Meniere's Disease - yay!!! But rather, an issue within my Central Nervous System, likely stemming from the hernia in my spinal neck that occurred during the car accident - no!!!!Recurring bouts of temporary blindness and hearing loss with migraines that last up to a week at a time found me unable to be the kick ass Product Manager that I used to be, and I was laid off last year. This is where YOU become a saving grace for me. The debts and expenses have been mounting and I am facing eviction. Those of you who have met Aveline and Fiona know that they have big, boisterous personalities in their tiny toddler frames.Please help me in keeping my apartment in Oregon so that I can remain a stone's throw from my girls and gather the strength to take on this very difficult leg in my life's journey.
